There's Some Buddhists at the Pearly Gate

I'm listening to Randy Newman's Faust musical right now, specifically the song "How Great Our Lord". It's really heretical and funny. Here it is:

Sorry ladies, to make you wait
There's a couple of Buddhists at the Pearly gate
They asked permission to come on board
Angels: What'd you do Lord?
I had to put them out with the trash
Sing it!
Oh Lord, how great our Lord
Oh Lord, how great our Lord
(Angel babble)

Ladies, ladies,
Why does the earth, glide by below
Like a great big rubber ball?
Angel: It is like a rubber ball!
Why does the bird, fly through the sky
Why does the apple fall?

Folks up here, ask me why
Things go so badly down below
I tell them when they ask me why
I really do not know
Angel: But you do know, don't you Lord?
Lord: 'Course I do! Sing it!

Oh Lord, how great our Lord
Oh Lord, how great our Lord

Folks up here, ask me why
Things go so badly down below
I like to tell them when they ask me why
I say I really don't know
Angel: But you do know, don't You?
Lord: You know it, come on!

Oh Lord, how great our Lord
Oh Lord, how great our Lord
Oh Lord, how great our Lord
Oh Lord, how great our Lord
Oh Lord, how great our Lord
